Drop off/pick up

Only staying for a short while? Our convenient drop-off & pick-up areas are located directly outside the Terminal.

In line with our flysafe measures, we're asking you to wait in your car whilst you're picking-up your nearest and dearest. This helps us to support social distancing in the terminal for those who are travelling.

Taxi drop-off and pick-up

Already booked your taxi? No problem – just arrange to meet them in the Pick-Up Zone on the ground floor of the MultiStorey car park.

Taxis can drop off passengers in either the Drop-Off Zone opposite the terminal or in the free drop-off zone in the LongStay car park.

The free drop-off area is in the LongStay car park, so you’ll need to take the walking route and only takes around 6-8 minutes.

You can also pre-book your taxi from the airport via our partners Edinburgh City Private Hire.
